What Trueform says for Watford vs Tottenham
Surprise package Watford and title hopefuls Tottenham have both made a superb start to the new Premier League season and are hard to split on current Trueform ratings.
Both teams go into Sunday’s televised clash at Vicarage Road with maximum points from their opening three fixtures and full of confidence.
Spurs are a stronger outfit on paper, but the Hornets are playing with great spirit and have home advantage, so 13/4 for a draw is our initial Watford vs Tottenham prediction.
A Look At Watford’s Betting Odds
Following convincing victories over Brighton and Burnley, Watford were made to work hard by Crystal Palace here, but rose to the challenge to record a 2-1 success.
Etienne Capoue was fortunate to avoid being sent off for his foul on Wilfried Zaha during that clash and went on to set up Roberto Pereyra’s opener.
Jose Holebas then added a second for the Hornets and they held on despite Zaha pulling one back on 78 minutes.
Head coach Javi Gracia said: “To get three wins in a row is something special. Something amazing.
“We are enjoying the moment, knowing it’s only the beginning, but we have done three important steps. But only three. We need to keep going.”
A Look At Tottenham Hotspur’s Betting Odds
Tottenham were workmanlike in wins over Newcastle and Fulham but then made a real statement when prevailing 3-0 at Manchester United on Monday night.
After being pushed hard in the opening period, Spurs went ahead through an excellent Harry Kane header and then pulled clear thanks to a Lucas Moura double.
“It’s been a great start for us,” declared Kane. “We’re not getting too carried away, of course, it’s only three games in, but that’s what we needed.
“We needed to start the season well and now it’s about maintaining that for the rest of the year.”
Spurs’ start is all the more impressive given the fact their nine World Cup semi-finalists made late returns to training in a summer when Mauricio Pochettino’s men did not make a single signing.
However, we just have a niggling feeling that they were flattered by that Old Trafford scoreline and need more evidence before hailing them as genuine title contenders.
Let’s add 21/4 for the scores to be level at half-time and full-time to our Watford vs Tottenham betting tips.
